English Homework:
Design A Machine

pencil.gif 1998 Gareth Pitchford http://www.primaryresources.co.uk

Are there any jobs that you don’t like doing around the house?

Are there any tasks that other people in your family don’t like doing?

Imagine that you could buy special machines to do the tasks that nobody likes doing. I want you to invent a machine to do one of those tasks.

Draw a picture of your machine and label your picture to show what parts do what. Write down why you’ve decided to invent the machine and tell me a little bit about how it works.

English Homework:
Alien Explanation

pencil.gif 1998 Gareth Pitchford http://www.primaryresources.co.uk

If an alien came down to Earth from another planet he would probably be very confused by a lot of things he would find here.

Look around your house. There are a lot of things in your house that would confuse an alien. You probably take a lot of these things for granted. Things like a television, a video recorder, a computer, a vacuum cleaner, and a washing machine would probably be unknown to the alien.

Imagine an alien did land on Earth and that you made friends with it. Choose an item from the list above, or use an idea of your own, and explain what it is to the alien. Write your explanation down. Think about what the thing is used for, how you use it and how it works. You could draw a labelled diagram to help you explain things.

English Homework:
A Monster Homework

pencil.gif 1998 Gareth Pitchford http://www.primaryresources.co.uk

Imagine two monsters. One is a nice monster. One is a horrible monster.

Write a list of things that a monster’s body would have. E.g. head, eyes, nose, mouth, ears and legs.

Think of your horrible monster. Write a word to describe what its head is like, e.g. gigantic head. Write a describing word to go with each of the other things in your list. Try not to use the same describing word twice.

Do the same for your nice monster. If you like you can draw and label a picture of both monsters (write your describing words around the picture.)

Bring your work on monsters into school.
